What Styles Are Best For Your Face? April 22, 2016 09:27

Ever wonder what style will look good on you? Well I always say it's like a room, when you walk into a room you don't want to see a bunch of clutter. You want to see want to see a beautiful space. With hair you want to people to look into your eyes. Not be distracted to the top of your head and not to be distracted to your chin.  So here is a little guide as to what hair style is good for your face shape.

Diamond - Reduce Width At Sides
The diamond-shaped face is characterized by a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Diamond shaped faces need narrow sides and fullness at the chin. Bobs work very well. Avoid height on top or volume on the sides. Use some fringe or bangs to cover narrow forehead.

Heart - Add Volume At Chin
The heart-shaped face is characterized by a wider forehead and a narrower chin. Bring
some hair onto the forehead to disguise its width. Keep hair close to the head at the
eyes but make it slightly full around the jaw, and below and in front of the earlobes.

Oblong - Add Softness
The oblong-shaped face is characterized by a very long and narrow bone structure. An oblong facial shape often has a long, thin neck. Use a fringe or half-bang across the forehead by creating the soft waves or curls in the crown or nape areas. This helps to create the illusion of an oval.

Oval - Many Choices
As its name implies, the oval-shaped face is longer than wide, with a jaw that is
narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval shaped face has no dominant
areas and is so proportional, this face looks good with just about any hairstyle,
length or texture.

Pear - Add Volume Above Jaw Line
The pear-shaped face is characterized by a small or narrow forehead and a rather
large pouchy-appearing jaw line. Comb hair to add width from the eye level through
the crown of the head. Set and comb hair close to the head on the sites and at the nape.

Round - Avoid Width
The round-shaped face is characterized by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. A geometric or linear style looks very good. Add height and long wispy sides to make the cheeks look narrow. Comb hair close to the head on the sides and the nape of the neck.

Square - Avoid Straight Lines                                                                                                  

The square shaped face is characterized by a wide hairline and jaw. Square shaped faces need height on top and narrowness at the sides. Comb the hair off the forehead to add height to the face. Curly texture and wisps of hair around the face break the wide, straight lines common to the square face.
